Empower Semiconductor, Inc. has signed a European agreement with technology distributor SE Spezial-Electronic. Under the terms of the agreement, SE Spezial will provide comprehensive sales and support services for Empower’s technologies to customers throughout Europe, UK and Russia.
The new agreement allows Empower to support the rapidly growing demand for its IVR and advanced E-Cap solid-state capacitor products. As well as the distributor’s well-established logistics infrastructure, SE Spezial will be able to support custom product developments built around advanced semiconductor technologies.
Empower’s IVRs are high-performance power management chips designed to provide performance, efficiency, size, and cost benefits to energy-hungry, data-intensive electronics applications by replacing the traditional power management integrated circuits (PMICs) with a single tiny IC. The company’s E-Cap solution is a compact, high-performance, configurable silicon-based alternative to conventional multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs).
Commenting on the new agreement, Steve Shultis, Empower’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing states, “We are actively expanding our global sales and support capabilities as we ramp up our IVR and E-Cap businesses. SE Spezial-Electronic offers the perfect combination of experience, technical knowledge and logistics that not only ensures European customers have rapid access to these technologies but also provides a route to local support as they develop their next-generation applications.”
Steve Attfield (Business Development Dir.) of SE Spezial-Electronic GmbH adds, “We have over fifty years’ experience in supplying technically advanced products across a wide variety of applications. Empower’s IVR and E-Cap technologies are world leading and complement our existing portfolio of semiconductor, passive and power solutions and are ideally for our customers looking to develop the next-generation of ultra-efficient power architectures.”
